Child Arrangement Order

Applications for child arrangements orders are usually between private individuals, under s8 Children Act 1989.

Certain categories of people are entitled to make an application for a child arrangements order under s8 without having to seek permission from the court first, and they are:

1. The parent, guardian or special guardian of a child;

2. Any person who has parental responsibility;

3. Anyone who holds a residence order in respect of the child;

4. Any party to a marriage or civil partnership where the child is a child of the family;

5. Anyone with whom the child has lived for at least three years;

6. Anyone who has obtained the consent of:

a) a residence order;
b) the local authority if the child is in their care; or
c) everyone who has parental responsibility for the child.

Other people can make an application to the court for permission to issue an application for a child arrangements order. In deciding whether to give permission the court will take into account, amongst other things:

1. The nature of the application;
2. The applicant’s connection with the child;
3. The risk there might be of the proposed application disrupting the child’s life to such an extent that they should be harmed by it.

It is via this route that wider family members such as grandparents are able to apply for orders in respect of their grandchildren.

The firm is reliable and in our case produced excellent results. Mohammed Rahman, the case worker that guided us through every step of the process, was professional and very helpful. They are well worth hiring and I highly recommend them to anyone trying to get a visa for the United Kingdom.

One Source Solicitors are the best ever and experienced in immigration matter and especially Rehman and Mr Bashir who were working on our case and they’ve done absolutely great job, they just shocked me how fast and good they dealt in my case. I would really appreciate their great job and I would recommend to everyone they are the best ever.

Fantastic service, I filled in one short easy form to send them my claim and they did the whole thing without any further input on my part. Kept in touch with updates via email throughout about 1 email a fortnight updating what was happening which was perfect I didn't have to chase for updates or reply to any of their emails as they didn't need anything from me - my friend tried to claim for the same flight herself the airline just turned her down illegally as they always do but One Source Solicitors got me my compensation from the airline with the help ofcourt so I can't recommend them enough! Great work guys!

100% happy with One Source Solicitors. I tried for a couple of months to claim compensation directly from the airline and was repeatedly fobbed off. I was a bit apprehensive about using a law firm at first, however this team quickly responded to any queries I had and put my mind at rest. After instructing them to act on my behalf, they successfully received my compensation within a few weeks, and cash is in my account a week later. Great service.

One of my friend told me about One Source Solicitors and I contact them for processing my visa, my case was a not a simple case because of the way I was getting paid partially in UK and partially in India. Bilal helped me to understand the visa eligibility rules and processed my visa. I recommended this team for all people who wants to process UK visa as they very knowledgeable and experience in the visa processing field.
